Escalator out of order in Vienna

Fun sign in a passage of Vienna

This notice made me smile. Literally translated it says: ‘This escalator has been disabled for reasons of safety’. I do hope they will be able to modernise this escalator soon.

The German text of the notice: ‘Diese Fahrtreppe musste aus Sicherheitsgründen außer Betrieb genommen werden’. I guess the workers had taken a barrier from a real escalator and didn’t care about the notice.
